# This is a regression test for the following bug, as of 2003-12-12:
# Set a breakpoint which will be hit many times. Attach a complex set
# of commands to it, including a "continue" command. Run the program,
# so that the breakpoint is hit, its commands get executed, and the
# program continues and hits the breakpoint again. You will see
# messages like "warning: Invalid control type in command structure.",
# or maybe GDB will crash.
# When the breakpoint is hit, bpstat_stop_status copies the
# breakpoint's command tree to the bpstat. bpstat_do_actions then
# calls execute_control_command to run the commands. The 'continue'
# command invokes the following chain of calls:
# continue_command
# -> clear_proceed_status
# -> bpstat_clear
# -> free_command_lines
# -> frees the commands we are currently running.
# When control does eventually return to execute_control_command, GDB
# continues to walk the tree of freed command nodes, resulting in the
# error messages and / or crashes.
# Since this bug depends on storage being reused between the time that
# we continue and the time that we fall back to bpstat_do_actions, the
# reproduction recipe is more delicate than I would like. I welcome
# suggestions for improving this.
